Miami orthopedic surgeon Ignacio Calvo was arrested on June 16 after police allegedly discovered he downloaded and shared pornography featuring children as young as 2 years old.
Calvo, 89, is being charged with one count of transmitting child pornography and ten counts of possession of child pornography. It is unclear if he is being held on bond. News sources did not say if he has hired a defense attorney.
According to the arrest report, law enforcement agents targeted Calvo after discovering he was sharing at least 13 child porn videos on a sharing network that allows users to swap media files.
Federal agents searched Calvo’s Brickell penthouse and reportedly found at least 10 videos on his laptop depicting children under the age of 14 engaged in various sex acts. When questioned by investigators about the videos, Calvo allegedly admitting to downloading them “years ago.”
